SAFETY IN NUMBERS?

Intellectual property specialist chambers 19 Old Buildings have announced their forthcoming merger, on 1 October 2004, with Hogarth Chambers. The merged set, some 30 members strong, will operate both from 5 New Square and from the annexe at 19 Old Buildings.

The IPKat wonders whether this fine example of consolidation of intellectual property expertise at the English Bar will trigger further mergers of IP sets that wish to achieve greater economies of scale as well as a wider spread of competency within that field.
